I picked up the platform tow trailer from Hearne today. Mick was the last person up doing maintenance and had left the battery charger on and plugged in.
We are no longer sharing the hanger there and needed to vacate the space. I will do a pull of with the line and test everything. I did pull off 20-40' and ran the starter motor rewind and it worked flawlessly. Ingo was tasked with making contact with the airport manager to insure we could still access for towing (any updates??).
Mick and I talked today and he believes that as long as no instruction is being performed we can use the winch without having to update with all the new RRG requirements. Any advice BartWeghorst and Tiki? If this is so I would highly recommend that all go get rated with Greg Ludwig asap.
Every time I go to Hearne I am reminded of how great a place it is to fly. Very little GA traffic. RV pads. Nice green grass to set-up on and it has proven as a great xc site.
I will insure the winch is working. I will update the trailer tags so it can be road worthy. Can we get a show of hands who is rated to tow and let's please go fly here.
